Liquid Gold: Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2019. Score 94/100
Producer’s tasting notes.
Nose: Enticing honeycomb and vanilla fudge wrapped in a hint of sweet beeswax. Light and fresh with the promise of violet crumble.
Palate: Lovely, creamy and mouth-filling soft, sweet spirit with a solid base of clean malt underpinning the vanilla crème brulee notes that shout ‘well made bourbon cask single malt’. A pleasantly light, beguiling and eventually deeply satisfying dram.
Finish: Medium to long with lingering toffee notes and enough white oak tannins to guard against any cloying effect. An entirely satisfying conclusion that invites another visit..
